Take It Away 0% Finance Changes
For all of you Dolphin Music regular customers, you'll know that you can receive 0% finance on your gear with The Arts Council's Take It Away funding scheme. Up until April 1st 2011, the scheme was available to anybody over the age of 18 for a purchase of up to £2,000 of any kind of musical instrument, and pay it back in nine monthly instalments, completely interest free.
Changes to eligibility criteria
Due to significant reduction in Arts Council funding for Take it away, from April 1st 2011 the scheme will be restricted to applicants aged 18-25 years with a refocus to encourage young people to continue and develop their involvement in music beyond school and into adulthood.
How do I Take it away?
First, visit our Liverpool store and find an instrument that you want to buy. If you don't know what you're looking for, staff in the store will be able to give you help and advice in selecting the right instrument for your needs.
Once you've made your decision, you can apply for a Take it away loan to finance your purchase. You will need to bring a credit or debit card with you in order to pay the 10% deposit. The application process takes no more than a few minutes and, if approved, you can take your purchase away with you there and then.
